    Sift the flour and 1 tablespoon salt together into a large mixing bowl. Add 3/4 cup water and the eggs and mix until just combined (do not over mix).

    Bring a large pot of water to boil with a pinch of salt. Pour in the melted butter.

Once the dumplings float, strain into a bowl. Serve with goulash over the spaetzle.
